Diplomacy in the [George W.] Bush Administration is, ‘Alright, you fuckers, do what we say.’”

Richard Armitage, George W. Bush’s Deputy Secretary of State

What are your thoughts on Obama's nomination of John Kerry as Secretary of State?

I think Senator Kerry is an excellent choice.  He has a wealth of experience in foreign relations due to his lengthy service on that committee in the Senate, is well-known around the world, and has built personal relationships with many international leaders that will serve him and the President well once he takes over at State.  I think that Susan Rice got a raw deal over the Benghazi attacks and was unfairly made out to be the scapegoat, but I also think Kerry is a much more solid pick for Secretary of State than Rice would have been.
